Miles Kim, cyborg and relic of a war fading from memory, is on the last train ride of his life. When a gang of bandits attacks the train, Miles and a hundred passengers find themselves trapped in in a standoff in the middle of the desert.For the gang is led by an unknown entity that has set its sights on the train.It's a struggle for survival and a race to discover what is after them and who among the survivors is hiding a secret worth killing for.
At the start of this novel, the train robbery is just the tip of the iceberg in this short novel, starring a cyborg relic of war named Miles Kim. Miles is not young by any stretch of the imagination and is on the seraph engine to sell his parts and ends his life, all hoping to mend his relationship with his son Dylan. What unfolds is a hold-up that is anything but average, and he is determined to unravel the reason behind it so he can get on with the train ride.
The narration of this audiobook is tight and thrilling; the narrator is excellent at helping you distinguish characters with his voice. I had to double-check and only had one talented narrator in this book. The story is short and not overly complicated, making this a nice appetizer kind of read. The following stories follow Miles Kim beyond this last train ride into a life of being a sort of investigator for various crimes. I am interested in seeing what else Miles Kim will have to solve or fix.
